PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Portland overcame two early goals by Fabian Espindola to forge a 3-all draw with New York.

Espindola, a veteran acquired in the offseason from Real Salt Lake, scored in the ninth and 24th minutes, while Jamison Olave, also obtained in the trade with RSL, added a goal in the 28th minute.

Argentine midfielder Diego Valeri scored his first goal for the Timbers. Darlington Nagbe's goal in the second half pulled Portland closer before an own goal that bounced off of Olave in the 83rd minute tied it.
